The iPhone might have many good features, but a good calendar is not one of them. Which is why Sunrise is like a breath of fresh air. I love this little calendar. It's both on my phone and on my laptop. It's great when sheduling international Skype calls, I just enter the location of the person I'm calling and it automatically adjusts the time difference for me. I love it! It intergrates well with my Google Calendars, iCloud, Facebook, Evernote, Trello, Basecamp and much more. It even has cute little icons every time I enter an appointment which for some reason thrills me to bits!
Since being on the road, I've had to manage my budget extra well so I can fit in all the flight tickets, accommodation, savings, cost of living etc. I've used other tools but so far I like YNAB the best. The only thing I find lacking is that it doesn't allow for multiple currencies which is understandable seeing that most users won't have any use for that feature. But still, I prefer this to many other apps out there. Plus it's easy to immediately key in expenses on my phone and it syncs automatically with the app on my laptop.
Ah Google Drive, my life saver! I use google drive for all my writing work because it means I can access it from anywhere. It's become so inherent in my life that I almost never back up my work anywhere else, which could be a problem if anything happens to google...
I mostly use Dropbox to store photos and to share files with my clients. It's really handy but nothing to shout about to be completely honest. It's only on this list because I haven't found a better alternative for photo storage.
This is a simple time tracking tool that I use to keep track of my time. I often forget to turn off the time tracker, but I can then go back and adjust it. It's still great to see how many hours of work I actually get done compared to the time I spend on social media.
Overcast is what I use to listen to podcasts during long journeys. I'm pretty hooked on podcasts and look forward to starting one of my own soon. But back to Overcast, this app is simple to use and works better than the native iPhone podcast app. For a few dollars, you can buy the upgrade and get some well worth it extra features (sorry can't remember what they are right off the top of my head).
Man, how much do I love audio books? A whole damn lot! I pretty much listen to all my books now because it allows me to move around while still listening to something worth it. When I'm not listening to an interesting podcast, I'm listening to books while walking, driving, er.. anytime really.
What are your tools that you use?
